Visited the RRHoF in Cleveland this past week. One of the first displays you see is Jerry Garcia and some of his guitars. It is one of the view exhibits you can take photos of. If you have not seen - it's done right and looks good.

Not to dismiss your post in any way, but I have a LOT of misgivings about how the Hall has been operated, with particular regard to whatever selection process is used to induct members.

That having been said, though, let's say I was planning a road trip somewhere in the GENERAL vicinity of Cleveland (a city where I actually resided for a somewhat brief time many years ago, BTW); then take into consideration the fact that I definitely AM a big fan of rock and roll on many different levels. On a scale of 1 to 10, how highly would you recommend making the drive to visit the Hall?

I was in Cleveland on business and while I enjoyed the downtown, dining, etc., I would never go their on a vacation. That said, the hall was worth it. If you're into the music, it is a must see. Many, many good things in addition to anything GD.

The Monterey Pop Festival Movie was off the chart.

NOT go to Cleveland on vacation? But where else is there?


Kidding---I love Cleveland. As I said, I lived there for a while, about nine or ten months to be exact. Not a really long time, but enough to learn that, while the city has taken it on the chin for years-Mistake On The Lake, and all that-it really does have its own charm and its share of fun things to do and nice places to visit.

Until now I was blissfully ignorant of the Mascot Hall of Fame. What qualifications does a potential inductee have to meet? I mean, is there a recognized set of standards? This makes it look like all that the round-headed little 'toon needed to do was to get votes. Based on that, and if I didn't know better, I'd think the article was describing ascension to The White House.

I'd better look again. Maybe it actually IS describing ascension to The White House, because the guy in the picture looks a lot like Karl Rove.
